LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) - A Las Cruces woman accused of locking her niece with developmental delays in a wooden cage is headed to trial.
According to the Las Cruces Sun-News, talks broke down on a possible plea deal for Cindy Patriarchias.
Early this year, she and her then-boyfriend, Edmond Gonzales, allegedly locked the then-8-year old-girl in the cage while they took Patriarchias' three other kids to the movies.
Police say the cage was about 4 feet tall and 2 1/2 feet wide with a baby crib mattress inside.
Patriarchias is set for trial in January. Gonzales' case is still pending.
